Spiders Wearing Water Droplets as Hats – Uda Dennie

Created by Indonesian photographer Uda Dennie, this collection of macro photos were taken within Dennie’s garden area after some rainy weather. The jumping spiders appear to be wearing water droplets on top of their bodies, a phenomenon that provides Dennie approximately 60 seconds to snap photos before the water dissipates.

Speaking about the photos to the Daily Mail, Dennie said “I was really surprised to get such amazing pictures – it was really wonderful. I have seen anything like this before, it is such an interesting photograph. I have a real passion for macro photography and after lots of trial and error I’m now able to produce good images – perseverance really paid off.

    Spiders wearing water droplets as a hat is fantastic. The photos looks believable that a spider can wear a water droplets as a hat and due to the reflection where the spider stay makes it more fascinating. Base on my observation spiders are water proof.
